We have all been touched by cancer, whether directly, or indirectly. So we all have a reason to want better research, more chance for a cure, and increased awareness.
The Mother’s Day Classic event started in 1998 – starting as a simple walk in the park, and growing now into a major national community event, staged in most major cities and regional centres, including Toowoomba.
The idea inception came from Mavis Robertson, when, after witnessing a similar style event overseas, she spoke to Women In Super about holding a like-minded event in Australia. So a committee was formed, built on enthusiasm and sheer will-power, and the first events were held in Melbourne and Sydney.
Last year, more than 107,000 Australians participated in this amazing event, raising $3m for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, bringing the total of all monies raised to date up to $30.4m. What an amazing story.
At Struxi, we believe very strongly in supporting our community, and again this year, we are so proud to be a part of this fantastic event. So why don’t you get involved? The reasons to participate are all different, but everyone has a reason. So get started, and get a team ready to help support this extremely worthwhile cause. And guess what? It’s super easy!
This year it is being held on Sunday May 14 – so book it in your calendar right now.
